We just get the Intel for our office laptops. We used to pick up AMD based units but the Intel based units have seemed to last longer. So that's it.
As to the stalling, you want to be sure to move to SSD asap.
Hi everyone, I'm looking to buy a laptop and I've narrowed my search down to two candidates as stated in the title. I would use it primarily as a workstation (studying, office work, media consumption, file management, etc.) so gaming is not a huge factor in this case (although the i5 one does come with an MX150 which is nice in case I want to do some casual gaming). Also the R5 one comes with Windows 10 Pro instead of Home (I'm not sure how big of an advantage that is), but the i5 one is 15.6" and comes with a numeric pad (as opposed to 14" for the R5 one) which I think is more fitting for the use I'd give it.
Both laptops are similarly priced where I live, so that's not a big factor either. I'm looking for the one that can give me the best performance for the intended use as well as reliability and longevity. The biggest factors that are stalling me from jumping into a decision are the processors which are similar in peformance but both have advantages over the other depending on the task, and the memory since I fear DD3 might have become obsolete in 2019.
Here are two links I found for the laptops and their specs:
I hope to have been clear, thanks a lot in advance!
